“Seating in the Sidewalk?”

1367 R Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I understand that business need to reopen and keep things afloat, and a big part of that is outdoor seating. But I walked past Bluestone Lane in Logan Circle this morning and saw these tables in the middle of what I believe is a public sidewalk. Is this legal, and even if it is, isn’t this violating some kind of social distancing rules? There’s no way to get around the tables in a “socially distant” manner if people are sitting there (and if people are also sitting on the benches, which they usually are). Also, it’s just plain annoying to have this in the middle of the sidewalk.”

Ed. Note: I know many establishments were able to apply for extended patios. I’m not 100% sure what’s happening here but from the photo it looks like maybe they placed a separation so that it is safe to walk by in the street?
